I developed a weird rash shortly (about 3 hours) after having all four of my wisdom teeth extracted. The rash was localized to my right upper leg/groin area and is very very itchy. It started off as just red inflammed skin, but is now forming small white bumps. I took some over the counter anti-histamines which, surprisingly, worked really well in reducing the itchiness but the rash isn't getting any better. In fact today (5 days post extraction) I have a new outbreak of rash on my wrists. But this rash looks different as it is small red spots with no itchiness and no redness of skin.
I took two amoxicillin pills (one after the surgery, one the next morning) then stopped due to the rash. I then switched to clindamycin for two days, but have stopped taking that too because it seemed like the rash was getting worse.
My question is, are these symptoms consistent with an amocilillin rash? Namely, the really quick onset of itchiness (3 hours), the localization to the upper right leg/groin and the white bumps.
Was the onset of the rash sudden and intense?
Was the rash spreading rapidly after appearance around the groin area?
Have you experienced some mental disturbances before getting the rash?
Have you felt sensations of fever, nausea and vomiting, too?
The rash was pretty sudden (about 3 hours post operation and post antibiotic).
It didn't really spread until about 4 or 5 days later. Now it's all over my hands and writst. But, it is no longer itchy which I guess is a good thing!
The rash you have developed very soon after the amoxicillin usage, is an allergic reaction to the drug and usually is very sudden and intense.
Did the rash you have develop after three days of beginning the medication, spread every where on your trunk?
Where was the late rash mostly prominent?
